Herman the Bread Oven is getting a roof over his head, to serve as protection from the rain, frost and snow, to keep ‘him’ in optimum condition.
Robert has been hard at work for days now. The timber from the old rickety and as it turned out, unsafe, carport that stood in front is gone, repurposed for the greater good to form part of the framing for Herman’s roof.
Yesterday son-in-law Nat came to give a hand, so with two working for the cause, even greater progress has been made.
Robert has risked life and limb back on the roof this morning, anxious to seal the gaps before the forecast bad weather strikes. And just in the nick of time – here comes the rain …..
We now are confident that this wonderful oven will keep on baking as well as it has so far, for many years to come.
